Re: EpDis: The Fall Of Night

It was hinted at that the Centauri once worshipped the Shadows as gods, so the Vorlons probably never bothered to alter them, what with their distaste for touching anything a Shadow had already touched.

Didn't one of the Centauri trilogy novels have Londo writing in his memoirs about it and saying that he just saw a ball of light?

Re: EpDis: The Fall Of Night

The JMS commentary on this one had me confused. Kosh chose to "unmask" to save one life, because all life is sacred, for the Minbari as for the Vorlons? Well, certainly not true for the Minbari Warrier cast - and even Delenn threatened the Earth Captain with death in Severed Dreams. And the Vorlons - certainly all life wasn't sacred in Season 4, it also wasn't in Season 1 - Deathwalker.

Re: EpDis: The Fall Of Night

Indeed, and that's not really how I saw it. I don't think Kosh would have unmasked to save just anybody, but he already knew Sheridan had a special destiny and had to be saved. The Vorlons were just waiting for the right moment to unmask, and I guess this was as good a time as any.

Re: EpDis: The Fall Of Night

Excellent episode, no matter how many times I watch it.

Aside from the obvious over how Sheridan's jump looked, I always found it more curious how no-one looked at Sheridan differently, being saved by an angel. Granted, such a creature might gather attention quite differently than even someone who's falling through the air, but to no-one to even mention this later on as they got time to go through what happened... well, it's curious at the least. Definitely something that should've been handled at least somehow.

Re: EpDis: The Fall Of Night

One of my favorites of the season. The subtle approach seemed to always work for this show.

Looks like it's that scene where she falls asleep at breakfast.

Indeed. I enjoy that the show has fun but little, insignificant moments like that.
